Patch Cables etc.

Hey Everyone
Is there anywhere in the area I could buy some coax and ends? Barrie to Port Elgin. I purchased a SWR/Power Meter/Antenna Tuner and didn't realize I would need a jumper. I noticed shipping for a small cable on RadioWorld was twice the cost of the cable.
Thanks for your help
Scott

Try "The Source " on Meaford or Owen Sound. A little expensive but as they sell CB stuff, they usually carry PL-259 and SO-259 connectors and RG-58 coax. Or maybe one of the other club members might have some cable and connectors he might be willing to sell to you.

I doubt The Source has those conntectors, the website doesn't list any.

Paul EFQ gave me a bunch of those PL-259 connectors, and I have some coax. I'll bring it field day and we can make the cable as a project.

I just found a cable I got from another GBARC member, its PL259 to PL259 with a 1.5ft piece of coax. You can just have it, I don't need it for anything.

I checked with The Source today. They don't haven anything like that anymore but the lady there suggested I try Powered Up. It was closed today so I'll have to try another day.
